"GOP" stands for Guys Only Party, right? Uh, hello, Republicans? The Handmaid's Tale was not written as policy advice.
I'd never heard of that book kcrady ...so thanks, ..........nebula award, booker prize, etc nominee and all .......OK now I have to hunt it down.
I noticed while trawling that it is available in Sparksnotes.
I'm sure this is the real cause, if the original novel had not been truncated, abridged and annotated for dummies, these Republicans wouldn't have been capable of maintaining the intellectual rigour and focus needed to actually read it, let alone adopt as policy any of the concepts explored within.
